Whoops, saw your responses _after_ I sent my response to v2. In any
case this makes sense to me then! On Rockchip boards I've been
involved in we often added "sane defaults", but I can see how that
could be confusing in different ways. I'm happy with your choice and
it seems like a happy medium. The sdm845.dtsi file can have the main
definition of the nodes and can thus refer to the nodes. Then you
just add the extra bit in the board file.

What you propose is not what happened in v2 of the series
<https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10194201/> though. In v2 _both_
the pinconf and the pinmux moved to the board file. That's wrong.


To make it concrete, you'd have something like this (this has the
wrong bindings from the UART, but folks get the picture hopefully):


In sdm845.dtsi:

qup_uart2: serial@a84000 {
compatible = "qcom,geni-console", "qcom,geni-uart";
reg = <0xa84000 0x4000>;
reg-names = "se_phys";
clock-names = "se-clk", "m-ahb", "s-ahb";
clocks = <&gcc GCC_QUPV3_WRAP1_S1_CLK>,
<&gcc GCC_QUPV3_WRAP_1_M_AHB_CLK>,
<&gcc GCC_QUPV3_WRAP_1_S_AHB_CLK>;
pinctrl-names = "default", "sleep";
pinctrl-0 = <&qup_uart2_default>;
pinctrl-1 = <&qup_uart2_sleep>;
interrupts = <GIC_SPI 354 IRQ_TYPE_NONE>;
qcom,wrapper-core = <&qup_1>;
status = "disabled";
};

tlmm: pinctrl@3400000 {
compatible = "qcom,sdm845-pinctrl";
reg = <0x03400000 0xc00000>;
interrupts = <GIC_SPI 208 IRQ_TYPE_NONE>;
gpio-controller;
#gpio-cells = <2>;
interrupt-controller;
#interrupt-cells = <2>;

qup_uart2_default: qup_uart2_default {
pinmux {
function = "qup9";
pins = "gpio4", "gpio5";
};
};

qup_uart2_sleep: qup_uart2_sleep {
pinmux {
function = "gpio";
pins = "gpio4", "gpio5";
};
};
};

In sdm845-mtp.dts:

&qup_uart2_default {
pinconf {
pins = "gpio4", "gpio5";
drive-strength = <2>;
bias-disable;
};
};

&qup_uart2_sleep {
pinconf {
pins = "gpio4", "gpio5";
drive-strength = <2>;
bias-disable;
};
};
